As much as I hate to see summer behind us, there are many reasons I am happy to see a change of season.
First of all, I love clearance! Kohls has some great summer clearance right now – I was able to get a few new workout tops for less than $4 each this weekend. Can you say Score?!
Second, as much as I hate how retailers begin the holiday season so many months in advance, I do enjoy the festive décor arriving in stores. Though the weather is still on the warmer side, seeing all the decorations makes me want to pull out all my coats, scarves and boots to prepare for the winter!
I also have a thing for all things pumpkin related. Who doesn’t, right? I mean pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin scented candles…I was at Trader Joes the other day and bought some pumpkin pastries (like Pop Tarts!) and just can’t wait to try them!
If you are looking to start decorating your home with pumpkins, look at this fun idea above using flowers to cover up a pumpkin! I love this country, girly look for the fall. Use real flowers and pumpkins for a neat centerpiece idea, or use silk flowers and a craft store pumpkin for re-usable front porch décor.
I also think this would be adorable for a little girl – paint the pumpkin pink (or her favorite color) and cover with pink gerber daisies or small daisies from the garden!
